Welcome to the 13th Edition of the PSPB Quarterly Newsletter.
The IEEE PSPB Quarterly Newsletter was created to help you stay abreast of progress being made in the IEEE Publishing program.
Part of a longer term strategy to offer IEEE content in a more interactive way, a prototype of the Next Generation IEEE Article is now available through the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. This new format allows the reader to access the content as an HTML-formatted web page and enables them to extract components of an article, such as figures, data tables, and mathematical equations. It will also allow IEEE to mine and merge data from its articles with other information sources to create knowledge solutions.
Key features include:
In addition to sample conference proceeding articles, view examples of journal content from:
You can help us gauge user satisfaction by completing the survey on the home pages of the sample publications currently available in the pilot program.
A change in the IEEE PSPB Operations Manual now restricts authors from posting the final, published PDF version of their paper which has been incorporated into the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The change in Section 8.1.9 now more clearly defines (PDF, 281.6 KB) which versions of authors' papers are available for their own reuse. The new IEEE policy still allows authors (and their employers) to post an accepted, peer-reviewed manuscript.
The revised IEEE Copyright Form includes the important policy change (PDF, 45KB) in Section 8.1.9 and is now available online.
The American Business Media (ABM) trade association once again awarded IEEE with its prestigious Neal Awards.

To IEEE members, friends and colleagues, and their loved ones who have been affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami, IEEE expresses our heartfelt concern and sympathy. All IEEE members have been urged to support recovery and rebuilding efforts in Japan through reputable public charities. IEEE Spectrum Online created a special section on the disaster that went live the Monday after the disaster which will provide continuing news and analysis in the aftermath of the earthquake in Japan.
